About the Game

Other horse owners bring their horses to be massaged by your knowing hands.

You also have your own horse, of course, which, if the two of you trained enough, you take to various cross country races. Let’s win the Cup and make your dream come true!

If you are looking for a well rounded horse game, then this is a *very* well rounded horse game. It covers many aspects of horse life that other games do not usually include. These aspects include, but not limited to, horse riding, horse caring (beyond just cleaning and feeding), training, working with multiple horses, breeding and selling said horses, and running a profitable stable yard (where guests can rent your horses).

It takes a realistic approach to horses where it can while keeping in perspective that it is still a game. Some of these realities are the fact that your horse does get tired if run for too long, can get stressed, and even sick if not properly taken care of.

The in-game books (used for increasing skill levels) are not limited to in-game information, but rather information on the game's aspects in general, such as actual horse care, behavior to be taken when caring for a foal, etc.

As far as the technical aspects of the game goes, there are many positives. The graphics are not as realistic as most modern games, however, what it does have is beautiful. The controls are extremely simple, even if the concepts of the game are more for children 8+. The game restricts the player to an "8 hour day" where it will auto-save at the end of said day, so no night rides.

I would recommend this game for children 8+ and can go as high as teens to twenties. Definitely a fun, well rounded game for children and adults of all ages.

Gifted to me as a gag gift but the joke is on him because I love it. Actually it is not really my style but a free game is a free game. 10/10 GOTY

I bought this game for my Fiancee who is a real life equestrian and I wanted to get her something for rainy days. She started playing and I was amazed at how excited and happy this game was making her, so I purchased it for myself too. I am usually the kind of guy who plays RPG's and Resident Evil like horror games and so this is really not the kind of game I would usually go for. After 10 minutes of playing though, I was hooked!

This is a wonderful game that touches on many aspects of owning a horse in real life, and most of all it relies on teaching you how to manage your time. The horses are animated beautifully, and in my honest opinion the horse models are much better than much recent and bigger budget games like The Elder Scrolls Online, or Lord of the Rings Online. Some of the mini games are very fun to play too, like cleaning the horses hooves or hosing them down. I have found myself addicted to this game in a very short amount of time!

I would recommend this game to anyone who has a passing interest in horses, and also to anyone who just simply enjoys simulator style games as the main story mode has you rebuilding your business by training and selling horses.

Considering I had never previously heard of this game, nor even the company who made it, I honestly believe that this game deserves a 10/10 for playability and value for money.
